It's been six years since I began writing my first blog, "My Life With Mixed Connective Tissue Disease," documenting my life as a person living life with an incurable autoimmune disease. Today I realized the time has come to say good-bye to the past and start anew!
For the last few years I have been scribing inspirational quotes based on my metaphysical teachings and daily spiritual journey. I have shared many of them within the context of my blog, as well as on numerous Facebook posts and Tweets!
After my diagnosis almost 8 years ago, life for me changed forever. But through my illness and spiritual awakening, I discovered an inner strength within myself that I never knew existed.
I had to rediscover who I was--and then, learn to love myself all over again, despite everything. It took contemplating suicide while lying helplessly in bed, unable to walk or swallow, to accept those things I could not change, and then find new ways to make a difference in the world.
After realizing that life was worth living, I brushed myself off (in-between countless doctor visits and years of chemotherapy treatments) to become an ordained minister, a metaphysician, as well as a certified consulting hypnotist!
Through my blogging experience, I have received emails from hundreds of people all around the world, who have both encouraged and inspired me to continue writing. And, most importantly, to LIVE!
As I share my thoughts with you, please remember that my journey is a spiritual one. I believe a person can be spiritual without being religious. It's about one's personal connection with the divine. Delving into an understanding of spirituality can bring us into divine spiritual wisdom while growing closer into a relationship with a higher power.
My illness physically guided me onto a path of insight and learning upon which I would otherwise never have set foot. It was a supreme catalyst for increasing my own higher consciousness.
Through my experience, I have learned to focus on the direct correlation of the mind, body and one's health. I believe that every thought and emotion has a direct effect on the health and well-being of one's physical body.
Thanks for taking the time to visit! I look forward to sharing my insights and spiritual messages with you in the days and months to come.
For now, let me leave you with my first Dr. Bev'ism:
"I believe in me. Therefore, anything is possible."
